In January 2018 The Church of England’s Clewer Initiative and the Eastern Baptist Association are co-hosting a Modern Slavery Summit in Norwich to help train communities in Norfolk to combat modern slavery.  

A Modern Slavery Summit will take place on Saturday January 27 at Witard Road Baptist Church in Norwich, giving attendees a thorough grounding on what modern slavery looks like in the UK and how to spot the signs.

The newly launched Clewer Initiative, a project which forms part of the Church of England’s approach to eradicating modern slavery and the Eastern Baptist Association are co-hosting the Norwich summit.

Training will be delivered by the public body, the Gangmasters and Local Abuse Authority, with input from local police.

The focus is on training people in the key hallmarks of modern slavery, and equipping them to move forward in partnership with local police and statutory agencies. 

The summit starts at 10.30am until 2.30pm. It is free to attend but please click here to register.   

Witard Road Baptist Church is in Witard Road, Norwich NR7 9XD.
